    Do you have an owners manual or anything?
    Maybe call US Amps, or PM Flakko, see if he can find out for you.

    ....yeah if i understand you correctly your correct

    if your going to run it at 1 ohm you can double check and email us amps, but iam pretty sure it can handle 1ohm x4. i believe the 425X is the one that cannot handle the lower ohm

    If I recall all the UsAmps of the past were 1 ohms stereo stable, or at least I ran mine without any problems. All except the Xterminator series amps. Ask flakko he should know.
